Five Seniors Honored for Military Appointments

Five Seniors Honored for Military Appointments

On Wednesday, May 15, five seniors were honored for their commitment to serving in the United States Military following graduation.

Mr. David Monigal, from West Point Admissions Field Force, began the ceremony by recognizing John Majka ’24 and Shane Reilly ’24 on their admission into The United States Military Academy. “It is not an easy place to get in or an easy place to be but the best place to be from,” he shared. Drawing parallels between Malvern Prep and West Point, he emphasized the expectations of responsibility and its profound importance, both during their time at school and throughout life.

Following Mr. Monigal's heartfelt words, Captain Kevin O'Connor welcomed Logan Reed ’24, who was commissioned into the Army through the ROTC Program at the University of Georgia. Captain O’Connor expressed confidence in Reed's character, work ethic, and leadership potential, affirming the Army's trust in him.

Captain Megan Salinas recognized Daniel Milliken ’24, who was commissioned into the Navy through Villanova University’s ROTC program, and Aidan Regan ’24, who was commissioned into the Navy through the ROTC program at Penn State University. "In the civilian world, at the end of your work day, you go home... and work stays at work. In the military, those people that you are responsible for; you are responsible for them 24 hours a day," Salinas remarked, underscoring the commitment demanded by military service.

In honoring these seniors, we celebrate their achievements and embodiment of the core values essential to Malvern Prep. Their commitment to serving their country reflects the highest ideals of Truth, Unity, and Love, inspiring all who follow in their footsteps.
